Tomcat Window Authentication

Hello All,

How Tomcat is usually configured when it is wanted to get information
from Windows Server (e.g. Active Directory)? What Realms should be used and how this is done, any document available?

Second question is, that is if I e.g. for testing purposes want to use my local Windows's username and passwords for Tomcat's authentication how that can be done? In this case I have only my own PC running Windows without Windows Network Servers.

Can anyone give any tips to these questions?

I agree. Here's the link:
